Sermon on the Mount--Day 1

For the next 100 days, Daniel Triestman and I will be writing a very short devotional (about 100 words) each day on our Lord Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. We will post it on our blog We invite comments.

Matthew’s narrative of the sermon concludes, “And when Jesus had finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at His teaching.” I have written in the margin of my Bible, “me too!”  The soldiers who were sent to arrest Jesus couldn’t do their job because, as they said, “No one ever spoke like this man.”

I wrote a series of blogs on entitled, “Why I am not an atheist.” Each blog was a telling of a struggle I had worked through regarding my Christian Faith. But in truth, the real reason I am not an atheist is because of the words of the Lord Jesus. For who, but Diety, could say what He said?
